UNIVERSAL DISCLAIMER: I DON'T OWN ANYTHING RECOGNIZABLE
As much as it shames me to admit it, I kind of pulled an Alice. I dropped my bag next to my phone and ran full-speed into the arms of the man in front of me. My best friend, my protector, my brother. Joshua ... I flung myself into his waiting arms, wrapping my arms around his neck and my legs around his waist. He hugged me tightly and spun us around, smiling.
"I missed you too B!!" He gave me a gross wet kiss on the cheek. I saw some people stop and stare, whispering to the others around them. Let them talk.
"Josh! What are you doing here?" I asked as I wriggled out of his grasp. I didn't give him the chance to respond before pulling him over to meet my friends. "I want you to meet some people..."
"Oh! Wait, don't tell me" Josh said, eyeing everyone speculatively, "This monster is Emmett. He's the brother, right? And this guy is Edward? And hey! It's the Pix! Alice right?"
"You're Josh-O! Hi. Glad to see you remember me!"
"Yea, I'm Emmett, and you're Bella's friend from California?" My two brothers shook hands.
"That I am."
"My boyfriend." I said as I wrapped an arm around his waist, smiling up at him sweetly.
"Hmmm...Emmett," Josh said "How do we feel about this? I don't know this guy, you do. So, tell me, do I need to be worried?"
"JOSH! Come on, you should trust my judgement." I said as I playfully smacked his arm.
"But, Yes. Edward's a good guy." Emmett interjected.
"That's all I was asking B. I gotta take care of you...well not so much anymore, huh?" Josh sounded a bit sad about it.
"I'll always need you to protect me Josh. Besides...no one else here would take me to get a new tattoo if I asked. I'll definitely need you for that!" I joked.
"No! Dad said no more tattoos Bella!"
"Don't worry, Em. I was just joking. I plan on waiting for at least a few more months!" I continued to joke, but Emmett groaned. Then I noticed something in Josh's hand.
"Oh. My. Gosh! You didn't!" I said, as I took the leather jacket out of his hand and hugged it. "You DID!! OMG, where is she?!" The others looked confused while Josh laughed and told me to follow him. I squealed in delight and grabbed Edwards arm so he would follow us out to the parking lot. About half the cars were gone, and it was easy to spot the new one. Josh drove a huge 4x4 Dark blue Dodge with huge tires. I knew what was waiting for me, so I ran past him to the truck. When I got there, I was disappointed.
He sighed heavily. "On the other side of that van. I thought I'd hide her from you!"
"AH!" I screamed at him for making me anxious and ran past him, hitting him as I went, to the blue van not far from his truck. There she was, in all her glory. I stood there stunned by her beauty for a second, until I turned around to see an awe-struck Jasper, Alice, and Rose. And furious a Emmett and Edward.
"Guys..." I said tentatively "...this is Sasha!"
